We associate Italian loggia with elites, and during its rule of Crete when the official language was Italian, Venice created a strong Venetian noble class. The Heraklion loggia building that currently houses city hall is one of the most proud achievements of the era of...More

Beautiful building now serving as the Heraklion Town Hall. Very busy street with shops, bars and many businesses in the surrounding area. Seems like only Pedestrian traffic allowed here.

This building will remind you for sure of Italian loggias. Because it has indeed the same origin. It is a nice building, beautifully restored, that now is used as the Town Hall of Heraklio. You cannot enter inside but the courtyards are open.

Built by the Venetians in 1620, it is now fully restored and houses the Heraklion Town Hall. While its exterior is the main draw, it is open to the public and located on 25th Avgoustou St.
